MediaLane’s newest department is THEATRE. In 2020, the first production, HELLO, DOLLY!, will premiere and from September 2020, the musical Waitress will be out in the largest Dutch theatres. Regarding the theatre department, Iris van den Ende says: “My parents raised me to have a love for theatre. Here at MediaLane, we focus on the further development of television and live entertainment productions. The establishment of a theatre department fits very well within this vision. We will undertake this with an eye for talent and quality in our productions. Creating new and original titles—and thus contributing to the artistic development of the Dutch musical industry—will also be of paramount importance to MediaLane Theatre in the coming years.”
We believe in the power of talent as the heart of our content. That’s why we work closely with established talents such as Paul de Leeuw, Ivo Niehe, and André Hazes, but also with young talent. It’s our ambition to continue investing in this pool in order to retain long-term talent and help develop new talent.
Behind the scenes, we also work with the best teams of professionals and specialists within each department and in each discipline. From draft, production, commerce, to finished product.
